There's an awful lot of smoke around that guy.

Also....
As a young man, he considered joining the priesthood and spent a year at a seminary in 1976

Because of farking course he did.

I find interesting the fact that, unlike in the traditional narrative that we've all gotten used to in which a deeply closeted politician with a long, secret history of same-sex affairs and molestations builds a career out of being virulently anti-gay and opposing anything resembling gay rights, this man actually seemed to be a staunch gay rights advocate. But not, I guess, out. He almost certainly deserves prison, but there's probably a lot broken in his head.

We'll never know if this shiat is legit or not.

Meanwhile a decent mayor is forced to resign. Luckily, the contenders are as left-leaning, if not more.

I won't lie, my dick got me into some really stupid situations that I never would have thought possible before I hit 28 years old or so.   Your brain should be able to take hold of your body after that to prevent after 28, but maybe that's just me.

Elections in Seattle are non-partisan; so as Mayor he's neither D nor R.

Oh fark this shiat just got greenlit.

Prepare for the derp.

Murray was another in a long line of fake liberal douchebag Mayors beholden to the uptight monied interests that actually run this town.

Chuck Royer was the last decent mayor we had.

He's not much of a politician if he can't follow the most basic rule - never get caught with a dead girl or a live boy.

JFC, I thought I'd dodged this particular bullet. Responded to a 'durr hurr, thats dimmycrats fer ya' post on my FB along these lines:
I support Democratic policies, not politicians. He should face the same legal consequences as anyone else. They all should, regardless of the (R) or (D) next to their name.

I didn't want to get into an all-nighter, so I didn't mention the typical (R) response is to seek/grant 'forgiveness' (Haggarty comes to mind, as does Jim Bakker) where the typical (D) response is 'well, bye!'

Inasmuch as there are 'sides' in this kind of discussion, historical evidence supports the idea that if this guy was an (R), he'd be on his way to 'Jesus camp' right now while on a 'sabbatical to be with his family'.

recondite cetacean: You hope he gets his alleged victims? What, again?


Yes, that's clearly what I intended to convey instead of the more obvious interpretation of "I hope his alleged victims gets the help they need".

Honestly I don't wanna know what he was licking his way through and what center he was hoping to find

He may not be out as a pedo, but he is married to a man. So I think it's safe to say that he is out as a homosexual.

Didn't much care for Murray anyway, but it really annoys me off that one of the few openly gay mayors in the country had to have all these molestation allegations. It just gives fuel to assholes.

allegations aside for now, all I know is what I read from afar, but it seemed like politically and legislatively he was a good mayor with a solid background.  A couple of you close to the action have said you had problems with him as mayor, what were the issues?

I don't care if the next mayor is a flaming drag queen....as long as that person bring the NBA back to Seattle....and/or brings an NHL team to Seattle, it's all good.  (And taking on the severe homeless problem would be good, too...we're turning into San Francisco.)

Not just the homeless problem. For those who aren't familiar has a huge problem with homeless addicts. There have been hordes of non running RVs parked around town which were inhabited by addicts who paid for their drugs by robbing nearby houses and stores. There are stores that have closed their bathrooms to public use because there were multiple discarded needles and blood on the floor every day. There are green spaces and parks where you literally can not find a single square yard that doesn't have at least one discarded needle or syringe. And when the complained that it should be cleared up Murray claimed it was an attack on homeless children and people who were temporarily down on their luck.

Inciting people to block traffic, and to some extent...riot and vandalize.

Not to mention that she once said that Boeing should be taken over by the government...and she recently said that same thing about Amazon when they mentioned that a second HQ would not be in Seattle.  She is a full-fledged moonbat.

Bingo!

One of those RVs was parked on my street not too long ago....and I live in Lynnwood.  I was going to give them 1 more day before I called the cops, but they left before that.  And those scumbags left a bunch of trash on the street as well.
